I discovered apache2 logs it for each of my virtual domains being attacked by spambots. Looking into the directory of one my virtual domains


and doing a tail -f error_log

I saw an entry in the logs like:

[Mon Dec 15 22:23:05 2008] [crit] [client] mod_spamhaus: address is blacklisted. Deny connection to

Very cool! It has help reduce the abuse directed to all of my hosted web sites

Thanks! Falko for putting up this how-to.
